Alas I was unable to take a tasting note of this port.

Slightly darker than the 1976 and probably slightly corked due a slight mustiness on the nose. In the mouth it was very expressive and a great pleasure to drink; it would be nice to see what a perfect bottle of this wine would be like.

1978 Graham’s Malvedos Vintage Port:
While this showed plenty of fruit, good body, and lots of tannins, it too was corked. Such a shame as it held so much promise even from a faulty bottle. N/R
